Description Jamie Zawinski 2005-04-14 15:14:13 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.6) Gecko/20050323 Firefox/1.0.2 Fedora/1.0.2-1.3.1

Description of problem:
I have a PDF file that ggv can't read.
However, if I convert it to ps with "pdf2ps" first, that works.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. ggv /tmp/AxisMinutesn17.pdf  -->  "File is not a valid PostScript document."
2. pdf2ps /tmp/AxisMinutesn17.pdf /tmp/AxisMinutesn17.ps
3. ggv /tmp/AxisMinutesn17.ps   -->  works.

Actual Results:  As above.

Expected Results:  Step 1 should have just worked without the conversion.

Fedora Core 3 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for security
updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please reopen and
reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a security issue and
hasn't been resolved in the current FC5 updates or in the FC6 test
release, reopen and change the version to match.

Thank you!
